54 Sings ABBA will offer a stunning cast of former Mamma Mia! stars and other Broadway and nightclub headliners that will bring back the music that led to the group being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. ABBA’s greatest hits will live again in this loving tribute to one of the most stunningly musical of all groups to ever achieve worldwide fame.
Only one singing group has sold more records than ABBA: The Beatles. Estimates range as high as 500 million records sold for this Swedish group — the first to come from a non-English speaking country to have major and consistent success all over the English-speaking world. Their greatest success as a team was between 1975 and 1982. After 1982, ABBA’s reputation and popularity was refurbished when their music was prominently used in several hit motion pictures, including Muriel’s Wedding and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Then came Mamma Mia!, both the juggernaut stage musical and the hit motion picture, that consisted of a whole raft of their hit songs.
54 Sings ABBA will be produced, written, and hosted by New York impresario Scott Siegel, who is the creator/writer/host of Town Hall’s signature series, Broadway by the Year, which begins its 16th season in February. He has, in the past, presented Louise Pitre (the original Broadway star of Mamma Mia!) in concert, as well as worked with more than a dozen of the major stars of ABBA-related Broadway musicals — and many of them will be back for this special night of 54 Sings ABBA!
